In brief: Normal reaction
If a person is excited or engaged in what they are doing (whether it is video games or anything else) their heart rate and blood pressure will go up.
This is a normal reaction - feeling lightheaded is not normal and should be looked into. And don't forget to use some "game" time to play real games or do something active - exercise is important for good health (and anything is better than nothing).
